Friends of M:ST! The staff and board of M:ST would love your company at our upcoming fundraiser at the Elbow River Casino (218 18 Ave SE) on:

Monday, June 15 + Tuesday, June 16, 2020

An up to date schedule can be found at http://bit.ly/MSTCasino2020. To sign up, pick out the shift(s) you prefer and e-mail Jordan Schinkel at jordan@mountainstandardtime.org. If you have any questions or would like to know more about each position, please let us know.



> What is a casino fundraiser?

In exchange for contributing volunteers to work staff positions at a casino every two years, non-profits are generously remunerated the bulk of their programming funds from the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission. Each shift that you volunteer for raises almost $2000 in support of M:ST!


> Never been a casino volunteer before?

Not to worry - it's easy, and training is provided on site. As always, meals are free at the casino, and taxi chits can be provided as well as arranged rides with other volunteers.


> What does the fundraiser support?

M:ST specifically saves the majority of these funds to pay artist and professional fees, accommodations, and per diems. It is because of this funding that we can offer generous support to our artists that are above and beyond CAFAC recommendations. Our upcoming M:ST 10 Biennial will take place in September 2020 and these funds will be disbursed to the local, national and international presenting artists!
